Arnold Says "Close The Borders"

[Media Source*]

"Close the borders. Close the borders in California, and all across Mexico and the United States," Schwarzenegger told hundreds of newspaper publishers at Newspaper Association of American convention the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.

"Because I think it is just unfair to have all of those people coming across, and to have the borders open the way it is," the California governor said. "We in California have to still finish the border. That is the key thing -- to have borders and to keep the law, enforce the law."

Ironically Arnold isn't the best at articulating his words but what he clearly means is that the borders should be closed to illegal immigrants which has been a huge problem in the Golden State costing them up to $9 billion annually according to last year's report. Something has to be done about this, especially with MS-13 showing hints of smuggling Al Qaeda members through our borders.

Arnold later apologized for his comments (after clarification of coarse) but may have hinted upon a major problem facing America. Illegal immigration is out of control, and one only needs to visit the fields or construction sites to find plenty of them now-a-days. This response to undocumented aliens entering our nation is provoking outrage amongst the citizens of this great state, and if the politicians refuse to get involved then maybe the citizens will.

Fed up with a largely unresponsive government, an understaffed Border Patrol and the daily flood of illegal immigrants into the United States, civilian patrols have volunteered to guard a 23-mile stretch of the border in southeast Arizona. They are members of the Minuteman Project, a grassroots effort designed to call attention to what has become a virtual invasion from south of the border.

The fact that the Minuteman Project draws people from all walks of life, faith and politics is revealing that this is a main issue for America, and not just the "border states." Arnold (along with other politicians) are probably wondering why this is such an issue today and although "close the borders" is not what he meant to say ("secure the borders" is what he should have said) our government should close the borders to illegal immigrants and provide a system (an effective one) where they can enter in legally.

This issue is a pretty "hot button" but until Congress decides to act upon it, the citizens will have to continue to pay the cost and may end up defending the boarder themselves.
